Key Notes of Eau d'Ikar

What Does Eau d'Ikar Smell Like

Eau d'Ikar by Sisley opens with a bright, green citrus scent, heavily influenced by bergamot and mastic. Here, the citrus is tart and fresh, with the lemon and bitter orange adding zest. The mastic contributes a resinous touch, which is enhanced by the unusual yet fitting addition of carrot seed, providing an earthy undertone to this otherwise vibrant opening.

As the scent evolves, the mastic persists, dominating the heart of the perfume. This green resinous note is softened by a powdery iris and a touch of sweet jasmine. The addition of pekoe tea introduces a slightly smoky and bitter aspect, while the woody notes serve to ground the composition, acting as a subtle backbone.

The base of Eau d'Ikar remains resinous, with mastic still present. The vetiver adds a layer of earthy depth, making the scent feel more grounded. The cistus, or rockrose, lends a warm, amber-like quality and the sandalwood introduces a creamy, soft woodiness. The base feels like a natural continuation of the top and heart, ensuring a smooth, cohesive scent experience from start to finish.

Overall, Eau d'Ikar is a green, citrusy, spicy, and woody scent. Its character is fresh, yet with a definite resinous, spicy edge, and a warm, woody grounding.

Review of Eau d'Ikar

Eau d'Ikar by Sisley is a fragrance that certainly appeals to mature men with its dominant green and citrus notes. The scent gives off an aura of freshness that is lightly spiced and underlined by a woody base, making it a fitting choice for those who favor a more natural aroma. However, don't expect this perfume to leave a trail wherever you go; its sillage is relatively softer, creating a more personal experience. While it lacks in longevity, its scent profile makes up for it, especially during bloom-filled spring days and warm summer afternoons. It's a scent that easily transitions from daily use to a leisurely afternoon outing or a serious business meeting. The evening crowd and those looking for a fragrance for their night outs or sports activities might find it less fitting. Despite the value for money being just above average, Eau d'Ikar is a good pick for those who appreciate a fresh, green, and mildly spicy scent.
